    Default coelogyne candoonensis, philippines

    hi folks,

    finally a coelogyne is showing off and im very happy with those light brown colors.
    this species is similar to the "bilamellata" except the "calli" (2 humps) split in 2 running along the labellum, which is hidden coz the bloom never really fully opens.

    first pix is about 2 days before it opens....

    Those "mechanical difficulties" are so annoying when they happens.
    The caramel color of candoonensis is very pretty (just looked up a picture online)
